AbstractThe geomagnetic Observatory of L'Aquila was founded by Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) in 1958, on the occasion of the International Geophysical Year. It is the main Italian geomagnetic observatory and since 1999 is part of the Intermagnet network. In 2009 L’Aquila was struck by a strong earthquake; the town was seriously damaged, and since then many activities moved to the suburbs; close to the Geomagnetic Observatory new activities were planned. Then the necessity to find in the surroundings a new place, suitable for the installation of a Geomagnetic Observatory, arose. Several tests were made and a possible location was found in Castel Del Monte, 40km from L’Aquila; a preliminary analysis of the electromagnetic background noise and of the spatial magnetic field gradients has shown that the place can meet the requirements for a Geomagnetic Observatory. Meanwhile, in 2010, a new Geomagnetic Observatory was installed in Duronia, 130 km South-East from L’Aquila and since 2012 it is part of the Intermagnet network.
